Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Course for School of Medicine Faculty
February 19 @ 4:00 pm – 6:30 pm
Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is an evidence-based program shown to significantly reduce symptoms of stress and stress-related disorders, as well as contribute to an overall sense of well-being. This 8-week intensive mindfulness training will include guided meditation practices in a group setting, techniques to apply mindfulness in daily life, gentle yoga, group discussion and home practice with guided audio. Please note, this course is not a training course to teach mindfulness. It is an experiential course to promote stress reduction and well-being.
The course is presented by Neda Gould, Ph.D., director of the Mindfulness Program at Johns Hopkins. Sessions are in-person each Monday from 4pm to 6:30pm from January 22 through March 18th. The session on March 4th will be replaced with a Silent Retreat. Attendance is strongly recommended to 6 sessions and the Silent Retreat. The course is free, but space is limited.
Sessions take place on the East Baltimore Campus, room to be determined. If you are interested in attending please e-mail Dr. Neda Gould.
